How To Suppress Alerts From Cluster Resource ora.gsd (Oracle Global Services Daemon) for Oracle Database version 11.2.0.x in Grid Control?
The function of GSD (10g and above) is to service requests for 9i RAC management clients and therefore when there are no 9i databases present, there is nothing for GSD to do. Consequently, there will be no impact on a RAC cluster if GSD is offline and 9i is not used. If GSD service is not required, it can be temporarily disabled.
In Oracle database version 11.2.0.x GSD is disabled by default and the ora.gsd service will be show as target:offline, status:offline as follows:
If you discover an 11.2 database with Grid Control 11.1, Grid Control is expecting the service to be running, but its disabled in 11.2.x, so you need to suppress the alerts in Grid Control.
